County Commissioners announce upcoming June Primary Election

MAYVILLE – Commissioners Luz E. Torres and Brian C. Abram of the Chautauqua County Board of Elections have announced upcoming June 25 Primary Election information.

The deadline for a voter who is not registered in Chautauqua County to register for the June 25, 2024 Primary Election is Saturday, June 15. The Chautauqua County Board of Elections will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for anyone wishing to register. Per New York state election law, voters who are already registered needed to change their political party affiliation by February 14 to be eligible to vote in this Primary Election.

All Conservative party members will be eligible to vote in the June 25 Primary Election. “All other party members or voters without a designated party are not eligible to vote in this Primary Election,” noted Abram.

The Chautauqua County Board of Elections has designated one early voting poll site for the Primary Election. Early voting will be held at the Robert H. Jackson Center, 305 E 4th St. Jamestown. Voters should enter through the main doors off of Prendergast Avenue. The hours for this early voting period will revert back to the normal nine-day early voting schedule: Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday and Tuesday from noon to 8 p.m., and Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.. Early Voting will not be held on Monday, June 24.

“Due to the limited number of voters, we have consolidated some poll sites. All Conservative voters who are affected will be notified by mail,” added Commissioner Torres.

Voters who cast their ballot early will not be able to cast a ballot during subsequent early voting days or on Election Day. If you request an Early Mail or Absentee Ballot, recent law changes will prevent you from casting your ballot using the voting machine during Early Voting or on Election Day, you will only be able to vote a Provisional Affidavit Ballot, which can be counted if you have not already returned your ballot.

The Board of Elections website, www.votechautauqua.com has Sample Ballots available for any voter to view their ballot before they head to a poll site. Sample Ballots will also be available at each Early Voting site.
